The Mermaid Parade in Coney Island

Join us for the largest art parade in the nation! This will be my first year attending the Mermaid Parade and I am very excited to see artists from all around the city come together to express themselves with handmade costumes and general frivolity. Make sure to bring your cameras (and some sunblock and water as well).

We will meet at the southeast corner of Mermaid Avenue and 16th Street at noon and then walk over to find a good spot. I will send an email out the day before the event with my contact information should anyone have trouble finding us or if you’re running late.

You can check out more about The Mermaid Parade on their Web site: http://www.coneyisland.com/programs/mermaid-parade

    I had such a wonderful time today with all of you!! Of course I still managed to get majorly sunburned even with the sunblock. Oh well, it's good pain. :)

      Ann that's fine. It's an unlimited event so you can absolutely stay as a yes until you know definitely if you'll be going. I hope you feel better!
